The big quiz night of the year is. on again, on 1st March at Caloundra. You will shortly receive your TC request, and any past members are most welcome to attend what is traditionally a big night for Alex Rotary.

Board Meeting 

There will be a board meeting after this Friday’s breakfast meeting. All members welcome to attend. We’ll be discussing the club projects and plans for year ahead, including social activities.

Guest Speaker on Friday

A few months ago Alex Rotary attended the volunteering EXPO at USC and met with representatives from AIME, who do great work in mentoring indigenous students from school to University. We’re delighted to have Tamika Sadler talk to us on Friday about this important subject.


In a similar vein Sunshine Coast Rotoract have invited the club to attend their next meeting to discuss another WorkLife session to help undergrads transition to work.

Australia Day BBQ

Thank you to Bill B for reserving our BBQ spot by the Alex beach on Friday. As it turned out Bill made friends with the council team who were also up at that ungodly hour to clean the BBQ.

A few brave souls made it to the beach, and Stuart A and Bob L decided to have a “relaxing” swim between Mooloolaba and Maroochydore, arriving surprisingly in good shape at the BBQ as everyone was leaving. “Such is life”.

The BBQ folks were treated to not one but 2 Scottish accents….. as President John’s brother in law David from Glasgow, is visiting the Sunshine coast on his way to New Zealand.

But John need not have worried. Full marks to David who managed to understand most of the Australian accents present. (ouch!)

Cluster Meeting

The various Rotary clubs are meeting on Tuesday night to discuss the Care House and Care Garden Project. Stay tuned.

Fundraising Dinners – looking to get away from the washing up?

Fundraising dinners seem to be “the go” at present.

We have received invites from “The Shack” at Nambour, in aid of local people in need, and also from Sangs restaurant who help out in Vietnam. Flyers below.
